    A hero of the crusades, Dominic le Sabre has returned in glory and in triumph to claim his reward: the beautiful Saxon bride awarded to him by the conqueror king. But Lady Margaret of the Blackthorne cannot yield to the bold Norman invader.

    "The narrator spoiled the book"
    Overall

    I read this book when it was first published and despite a tendency towards purple prose, it was an enjoyable read. The audio version destroyed the charm of the book. The narrator's male character voices were awful and the lead female character, supposedly 19, sounded like a 40 year old from the east end of London at times. I would rank the text of the book a 3, the narration a 1.

    Story

    "I am Meredith, princess of faerie, wielder of the hands of Flesh and Blood, and at long last, I am with child twins, fathered by my royal guard. Though my uncle, Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, claims that he is the true father since he abducted me from my home, betrayed, and defiled me. And now he has branded my guards as a threat to my unborn children."

    Kristy says: "Story is great, narration was not so great"
    "Content 4, narration 1."
    Overall

    I don't know why the publisher changed narrators after so many books in the series but it was a change for the worse. The lead character is American, not British and the narrator's British accent is very distracting. Also, the narrator doesn't distinguish between characters with different voices so the narration is frequently confusing. While I enjoyed the book (Note: you have to read the previous books in this series to understand anything in this book), it took me about 4 hours to finally adjust to the new reader and I will probably not purchase the next volume if it is read by the same author -- I will go back to the book format.
